Science Makers explores 3D printing with food, flavour networks and molecular cuisine
Lab equipment and chemistry has made its way into the kitchen - with water baths, centrifuges, freeze dryers, 3D printers and more now involved in gastronomic creations. During the December Science Makers session, over 25 members of the SRI, Cambridge Makespace and interested members of the public heard about some of the techniques of 'molecular gastronomy' and tried them out!

Science Makers: Water Monitoring (build a 3D-printed microscope)
This month Science Makers takes a look at DIY water monitoring - a thriving area of grassroots and citizen science activity. Join us to build a microscope and Arduino-based sensors then investigate some samples from the River Cam!

Molecular Gastronomy
Lab equipment and chemistry has made its way into the kitchen - with water baths, centrifuges, freeze dryers, 3D printers and more now involved in gastronomic creations. During the December 2017 Science Makers session, over 25 members of the SRI, Cambridge Makespace and interested members of the public heard about some of the techniques of 'molecular gastronomy' and tried them out!

Science Maker: Multispectral Imaging with Raspberry Pi
During this Science Maker session, we will aim to build a multispectral camera and enclosure. Once they are finished, we will take photographs in the surrounding area and learn to process them!

Neurobiology: from brains to circuits
Probing the electrical systems of living things is easier than ever thanks to readily available open source technologies and commodity electronics. In this Science Makers we’ll explore open hardware for electrophysiology and measurement of behaviour in plants and animals for both education and research. Then we'll control machines using our minds (or at least muscle movements).

Science Makers: sensing with chemicals
From building electronic noses to detectors for toxic chemicals, chemical sensing is really useful and it’s becoming easier thanks to the availability of off-the-shelf components and microprocessors like Arduino. In this meeting we’ll delve into the art and science of chemical sensing.

Science Makers: building better microscopes
Last year we heard from Brad Amos on smartphone cameras for microscopy and the marvellous WaterScope on their 3D-printed, Raspberry Pi camera. This year we're stepping up a notch to look at DIY approaches to better microscopes, from automation to novel imaging techniques and even some more expensive (not so DIY) kit that illustrates benefits of custom approaches to imaging.

Science Makers: 3D Printing for Science
3D printing opens up a world of custom science instrumentation that can be instantly shared and fabricated around the world. It has been used to build precision microscopes and alignment tools, modify all manner of standard lab kit, visualise 3D structures from imaging data and more. In this Science Makers, we'll look at a whole range of ideas for 3D printing in science with both plastics and biomaterials. There will be an opportunity to try out some activities and play with hardware in the afternoon following lunch.
